purchased snap tile however when i went to get something to cut tile and i dont want wet saw i had seen about diamond bit but not sure how cuts straight line and it takes off some since it cuts 1/4 inch saw about angle grinder with diamond blade is that morter or what. i saw kit of roto zip has lots of items inside like sawcover and blade to cut woodwork to slice tile under think i would use all if this works out want to do bedroom and lr and dr one of the blades said dry diamond blade to attach to rotozip. how do cut straight line or can you use this type to cut tile

went on line to check on rotozip bit so what im gathering it cuts around things and create a bigger hole. could you use it with straight edge attachment to cut all straight cuts? also checked out 3 inch blade dry diamond says it needs to go with angle attachment does this attachment have straight edge attachment to cut straigt cut ?

Avaire tile is cut with the same tools traditional tile is cut with. An angle grinder with a diamond blade designed to cut porcelain tile or the Roto zip both work great for cutting Avaire tile and both will cut the tray with no problem. To make straight cuts you can either rent a wet saw or use a tile cutter and after snapping the tile gently fold back the tile exposing the plastic tray and carefully use a utility knife and score the tray a few times and continue to fold it back untill the tray snaps.
Hope this help. Let me know how it goes.

If you only have a few straight cutd then an agle grinder would work because the cut edge wouls be covered by base or quarter round. Most likely you have many straight cut then a wet saw will best your best option.

Don't waste your money buying a RotoZip. Rent a real tile wetsaw. The RotoZip will work on a limited basis but is much too light duty to last and won't cut straight lines without a straight guide of some description.

The 4" angle grinder will work but there again - too many cuts using a dry diamond blade will ruin the blade and progress will be very slow. Rent a wet saw.
